With a driving drum corps battery, taiko drummers, an arsenal of electronics including synthesizers, theremin, vocoders, and other custom-made sonic devices, itchy-O completely engulfs an audience from every angle in an electric bog of music, ephemera, and spectacle. Lauded as one of today’s most unique musical performance experiences, the group disrupts traditional performance protocols with a form of chaos that unifies spectators and audiences. Itchy-O performances awaken the senses, test assumptions, and create an opening for new experiences where identity and boundaries surrender and disband.
Look familiar? This troupe of sensuously unnerving provocateurs, fog, strobes, sequins, sweat and FURY, have become a regular part of Fantastic Fest. We love them and because during the pandemic we have gotten to help them share all the wild things they do with the world. So shut the blinds, turn up the volume, and check it out!!!
